About CCTNS

CCTNS is a Mission Mode project under the National e-Governance Plan of Govt of India, sponsored by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) aimed at creating a comprehensive and integrated system for enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of Policing. The Police Stations in the Country are, today, virtually unconnected islands in the case of Crime & Criminal Tracking. There is no system of effective data storage, data sharing and accessing data and no single system under which one Police unit can talk to another directly. Realizing the gross deficiency in connectivity, the Central Government is implementing an ambitious scheme called "Crime & Criminal Tracking Network and System (CCTNS)" for police functions.

The goals of the system are to facilitate collection, storage, retrieval, analysis, transfer and sharing of data and information at the police station and between the police station and the State Headquarters and the Central Police Organizations.
